A time when kings and queens vie for power amid treachery and betrayal...a time when brave knights live and die by a code of honor...And a time when women are nothing more than political game pieces, moved at will by the men in their lives.
One woman dares to be different. Maris of Langumont manages her father's vast estate, rides as well as any man, treats the sick and injured with herbs from her garden, and boldly argues politics with her father's peers. But everything changes the day her beloved father pledges her hand in marriage to a man she's never met.
Mistaken Identity. Dirick of Derkland cares about nothing but seeking vengeance for his father's brutal death. When the beautiful and spirited Maris mistakes him for her betrothed, sparks ignite, and he suddenly finds himself torn between honor and the only woman who may be able to heal his soul.
A Whisper of Rosemary.
